Rita Anne Andres

We regret to announce

the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on Jan. 3, 2007, of Rita Anne Andres of Lumby, at the age of 67 years. Rita was a resident of Manitoba for many years, prior to moving to Lumby over thirty years ago. Rita had many friends and many interests, but her greatest love was her family, especially her grandchildren in recent years. She was predeceased by her husband, Walter, in 1998, and was also predeceased by a brother, Emil. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her children: Brad (Terry-Lynn), Tim, Sally (George) Dyck, and Sheila (Rusty) Schunter; and grandchildren: Meagen, Tyler, Danielle, Tommy, Vanessa, and Mallory.

Rita is also survived by brother, Lawrence, in

Winnipeg, and many extended family members. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Lumby on Tuesday, January 9, at 10:00 A.M. with the Reverend Father Donald O’Reilly, celebrant. Interment will follow in Lumby Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Rita to the B.C. Heart and Stroke Foundation, 202-3402-27th Ave., Vernon, V1T 1S1. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home. 542-0155
